iv been told it was a sound card problem, well ... might be a different problem i was in (but theres many problems that can resemble the same effects)
anyways, for me it was because it was a cheap sound card
the sound card can only accept 1 program to play sound at a time (for the cheap cards, i think cards with that thing called full duplex can mix the audio from multiple programs at once and play them ...)
anyways, if it is sound card, use esd or arts (arts is usually for kde, gnome uses esd, but esd doesn't really on any gnome-only lib, i don't know about arts) .. ... these programs will act as a sound server so other apps can ask them to play sound,... kinda making those cheap cards that cant combine sounds into cards that can (as long as programs use the sound server, and not alsa/oss directly)
